Singapore Hosts Major Open-Source Meeting in November

The Asia Open Source Software Symposium wants to coordinate OSS efforts and facilitate communications across many
Asian countries.

From November 2 to 4, 2003, delegates from a dozen-and-a-half countries will meet in Singapore for the second Asia Open Source Software Symposium.
This time, Japan is teaming up with the Singapore Linux Users Group to host the open-source meeting in the hopes of building a "concrete cooperative
community" and embarking on "effective projects" involving a large number of countries in the world's most populated continent.

This year's event is a follow-up to the one held in Phuket, Thailand, in March of this year. The November meeting's aims include updating participants
about developments in each country, building a management system for the scattered Open Source community and finding ways to promote it through
enhanced Asian cooperation.
